“The Story of French” wins literary award

The Story of French, co-authored by PWAC Quebec member Julie Barlow and her husband Jean-Benoît Nadeau, has received the Prix de la Renaissance Française. Honoured by l’Académie des Science d’Outre-mer, the book is the first recipient of the  Prix de la Renaissance Française, which celebrates a work that highlights French literature or French culture inside and outside of France.

The Académie’s honorary President, Mr. Jacques Serres, described The Story of French as being, “A scholarly book that provides sound knowledge on a subject of great interest, with the added benefit of stirring up smiles from readers through humorous anecdotes.”

Congratulations, Julie and Jean-Benoît!
